  • Jewelry Challenge 2017

    This is a chance to show us your stuff and challenge your creativity. In the spirit of a good challenge - we are mixing it up this year!

    As in previous years, to participate, you must be a MASSC member and purchase a box. There will be four items in your box. Three are conventional materials jewelers use. One is an unusual item. You MUST use a recognizable portion of each of the four items in your box. You may add ANY ADDITIONAL MATERIALS. We will have one design requirement (which you will discover when you get your box).

Member Showcase

Monica Branstorm

Well hello there…it’s me, Monica Branstrom - your fellow MASSC member and MASSC Membership Chair. I have been making jewelry for about 15 years and I specialize in jewelry featuring sea glass (chunks of glass that have found their way into the ocean and have tumbled around for years and years gaining a frosty smooth finish). It was my interest in finding a way to do something creative with the sea glass I had collected that prompted me to pick up a torch. I started taking classes with Janice Lorber in Santa Barbara and continued with Deb Jemmott after I moved to south Orange County. Deb continues to be a source of instruction, support, and encouragement for me when I want to learn a new technique or need some honest feedback.
